ChTG only uses Institute of Tourist Guiding (ITG) fully qualified guides.  ITG guides are trained to be entertaining, informative and possess up to date knowledge of the places they are qualified to guide.

Green Badge Guides are typically town or city specialists.  They train for up to a year and take rigorous externally assessed written and practical examinations of their chosen location.



Blue Badge Guides are similarly trained and examined on courses lasting at least one year and their expertise extends to an entire region for example the South East of England.  ITG qualified guides are internationally recognised for providing the highest standards of excellence in tourist guiding.
